Bronwyn & Nate MARRIED!

It was a magical summer day at Flint Hill with friends and family waiting to celebrate with the couple. But first, there was the dress to put on! 

One of the things that struck me the most about Bronwyn was so just downright sweet she was. It was evident in the girls she had around her as they got ready! I felt like we became friends by the end of the night. And what's not to love about that? 

There was a moment after she had her dress on and we were waiting for the guys to come in so we can go an take photos with the girls and she peeked out the window into the parking lot and the audible gasp we all heard as she saw him was evidence of her excitement. She watched him until she couldn't see him anymore. 

These girls were just the best and we all had so much fun being silly and taking photos! 

Nate and Bronwyn opted not to do a first look but they did meet, divided by a door, and said a prayer together. Both were so emotional and she was crying and it was better and more intimate than any first look  we could have done. It was so touching to see them share that moment together before walking down the aisle. 

It was a beautiful wedding, the kiss was swoony and the party was just getting started! The love was bright and beautiful and so evident between these two!

These two couldn't be any cuter and sweeter and more in love. 

Overall, Flint Hill turned out to be a perfect destination for this sweet couple with its nook and crannies and gardens everywhere. It looked enchanting, smelled divine from all the blooming flowers, and even the angel statues looked on as we made beautiful memories last and told this couple's story.

It was a wonderful end to a wonderful day as these two lovebirds danced their last song, kissed to a cheering crowd and were sent off to their grand honeymoon adventure! I go to a lot of weddings and party alongside many couples, but this wedding I remember was hard to leave since everyone wanted to keep dancing and having fun. 

So keep dancing, Nate & Bronwyn and hope you never stop having fun together!

Birth Story: The most beautiful moments

Early in Februrary I got a call at 5am from my wonderful friend and mom to be for a third time saying she's in labor. I rushed over, a 15 minute drive seeming to take forever. I didn't want to miss a minute. 

Getting to photograph this special moment for my friend was so humbling and I was honored beyond words to witness a miracle. Seeing the beauty of a birth changes you. By no means was this my first, but it was no less amazing to see as my first time. 

Moms, if you have ever debated hiring a photographer for your birth, stop debating, stop hesitating. Think of the wonderful moments you can have captured by a trusted photographer for you to think back on years later. Have photos to represent those memory and treasure them forever. 

 

While Mom got ready and comfortable, Dad set the mood, helped her relax for the baby's arrival. 

 A few hours later into the morning as the  dawn light was spilling into the bathroom, things started to progress.

But it wasn't until 10am when the baby decided it was time to come out.

The first boy, and third kid for this sweet family was finally here. And boy would he be loved and spoiled by his big sisters.

Love was all around as family came to meet baby Gray. 

Isn't he just adorable? Come back later and see more sweet baby photos as I show you what a Fresh 48 session looks like.
